7th December 2015: Global mobile Suppliers Association (GSA) is pleased to announce that Nokia, one of the original-founding members of the GSA, has re-joined the GSA Executive Board.
“Nokia has supported the GSA activities and actively contributed to numerous projects over the past 17 years”, said Joe Barrett, President – GSA. “All of the GSA members and the other Executive members are pleased to welcome Nokia back to the GSA board.”
“We look forward to engaging even deeper with the GSA in its role to express mobile suppliers’ views”, said Hossein Moiin, Executive Vice President and CTO, Nokia Networks. “This is even more important as we work commonly toward 5G, complementing efforts of other sectors of the industry”.

Nokia will also be contributing to the 5G Executive Committee reports that are produced bi-annually. The first report was published in November this year.
